Meeting Room Capacity
The number of people allowed in the Meeting Room depends on the use and the risk assessment carried out for the event. Please do not invite the maximum numbers to your event until we have agreed that your event will comply with safety regulations.
The building fully complies with all safety regulations regarding emergency exits and fire alarms etc; The risk assessment will centre on how you will get people out and away from the building in the event of an emergency. For example it may take longer to get people out in wheelchairs or prams than a youth group. We will be able to help you with this.
